I posted this issue over on Microsoft Live Solution Centre Forum:
At first, Moderator Eugene C. stated what you did - that it was a know issue and that they were working on it.
Later, Eugene was corrected by Moderator Allan I, who stated that this was NOT a known issue and that the only way to correctly update Contacts was through the Server. Correcting Contacts from Outlook was not an option.
When I challenged that, another Moderator (Gwenyth A.) reiterated Allan's position and suggested that I could leave it as a suggestion for future upgrades at www.feedback.live.com
Really? If this is true, then this marks a true departure between how Microsoft and the other companies are handling their migration to the cloud.
For at least a year now, my friends with Macs have been able to make changes to their Contacts on any of their devices ( Mac, MobileMe Server, iPad, or Iphone ) and the changes migrates to all their other devices instananeously via their MobileMe Account.
I'm sure that Blackberry and Google must be attempting to follow Apple's lead in this case - but I'm not sure.
I want this feature. It seems so basic to what I thought was everyone's
What are your thoughts, should I be trading in my Windows Phone 7 for an iPhone, my PC for a Mac and my Live account for a MobileMe account?
